Question Kindle 2 .mobi limitations

What are the limitations to the Kindle 2's ability to use files generated by mobigen?

I created a small sample project consisting of the files:
1.html
2.html
toc.ncx
test.opf

Using mobigen V6.2 build 41 for linux I produced a nice .mobi file that works fine on my Kindle2 but no TOC. mobigen didn't generate any warnings other than my lack of a cover page.

I might have something wrong with my source, but I don't think so -- and before I proceed any further I was hoping someone could confirm that it should work.

toc.ncx:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0"  encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE ncx PUBLIC "-//NISO//DTD ncx 2005-1//EN" "http://www.daisy.org/z3986/2005/ncx-2005-1.dtd">
